Let's Talk Talc


Date: March 14, 2019
Location: Orlando, FL

Nick Martin (Partner-San Francisco) will appear on a panel, “Let’s Talk Talc,” at the 2019 CLM Annual Conference to be held March 13−15, 2019, in Orlando, Florida. Juries have reacted to the sensational nature of claims involving the use of talcum powder by awarding millions of dollars in damages. The message behind the verdicts seems to be punitive against the manufacturers. However, the clash among experts in the field and the lack of clear scientific proof suggests these claims while sensational may not be a "slam dunk" for the plaintiffs’ bar. Planning a defense starts when the claim is filed and involves formulating a strategy to educate the jury about the science behind the claims.
